Description

Every year 44,000 people die by suicide. Understand the connection between Substance Abuse and Suicide.

That’s about 120 people a day. People with a substance abuse disorder are 6 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population. In fact, suicide is a leading cause of death among people who abuse alcohol and drugs. Studies show that 33.4% of suicide deaths tested positive for alcohol, 24% for antidepressants and 20% for opiates.

This brochure shows the link between substance abuse disorders and a higher risk for suicide. It explores the common causes between substance and mental health issues including: brain chemistry, family history, and past trauma that trigger both issues. The pamphlet explains risk factors for suicide and warning signs for suicide and the difference between each. It helps family members and friends seek preventative measures to help loved ones dealing with substance abuse and depression. Explains protective factors that can help a person dealing with substance abuse stay away from suicide and what to do if a friend or family member admits to suicidal thoughts or actions.

The pamphlet also has information on 24-7 support and help lines.
